Learn a skill, climb a hill

Learning in Mallerstang

An Excellent Area to Learn - Mallerstang

On the fringes of the Yorkshire Dales National Park the beautiful valley of Mallerstang is an excellent base to learn navigation skills. As well as being stunningly beautiful, the unspoilt nature of the area and lack of major walking tracks makes this ideal to learn to navigate. The Lake District will be a doddle after this course!

The Moorcock Inn is at Garsdale Head at the head of Mallerstang.
